For my husband...
Without my amazing husband none of the this would be possible. Our kids adore him because he spends so much time with them and communicates with them on their level. He is patient and generous and loves them more than anything. We always wanted a big family, and we are thrilled to have four kids who make our lives fulfilling. I love him for being such a wonderful dad and partner.
For my dad...
My dad is the type of guy who can fix anything. Anything. Really. He is my go-to guy for any household (or otherwise) problem, and I still call him about once a month with some "emergency," with which is he always willing and able to help. Sometimes the emergencies are big and difficult to discuss, and other times I just need help getting the pool filter going. No matter what I can count on him for help. Thank GOD for that!
For all great dads everywhere...
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY

When we moved into our house we were thrilled that it had a swimming pool. I lived in a pool growing up and dreamed of having one of my own for my own family, so it was a selling point for us. Problem is that the liner really began fading in the past five years, and the with the constant sun it began to break down.
We budgeted money to replace the liner this summer, and here it is. I cannot tell you how stressful this seemingly simple choice was for our family. My husband had definite ideas about what color liner he wanted, and then there were other issues that arose from my expectations of the service. (I may or may not share them here.) However, I did want to share these especially cute pictures of some of my little ones enjoying their Daddy and their pool (and their new watering cans).
